Buy tickets -All films in The Strand's Silent Film Series, the only one of its kind in the state, are accompanied live by Strand organist Ron Carter on The Strand's Mighty Allen Theatre Organ, making seeing one of these classic films a one-of-a-kind musical and visual experience. Each film also features an organ pops pre-show concert beginning thirty minutes before showtime.ABOUT THE KID BROTHER Harold Hickory (Harold Lloyd), a feeble boy in an otherwise brawny family, is known for being clever -- and getting into trouble. After inviting the lovely carnival worker Mary Powers (Jobyna Ralston) into his home, Hickory discovers that a large sum of money entrusted to his father, the sheriff (Walter James), has gone missing. In this slapstick tale of mystery, Hickory must think fast in order to clear his family name, even if it means facing the strongman Sandoni (Constantine Romanoff).ABOUT THE ORGANIST Ron Carter is a sought after theatre organ and silent film accompanist playing in theaters throughout the southeast. He is the theatre organ consultant for Allen Organ Studios of Atlanta and the house organist for both the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center in Atlanta and the Earl and Rachel Smith Strand Theatre in Marietta, Georgia. He has been a member of the Strand Theatre Board of Trustees since its inception 14 years ago having served as Board Secretary for 13 of those years. He is also the past Chairman of the Board for Marietta's Pops Orchestra, Symphony on the Square. Ron is the former President of the Atlanta Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society and a recipient of its 2009 Life Time Achievement Award, the American Theatre Organ Society's 2009 Honorary Member award, and was recognized by the Cobb County Georgia Cultural Arts Board as Cobb's 2010 Outstanding Instrumentalist.ABOUT THE MIGHTY ALLEN The Strand's Mighty Allen Theatre Organ, a four-manual, 33-rank digital replica of a 1920s Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ, was the largest stock theatre organ produced by the Allen Company at the time it was built. The Mighty Allen has been custom voiced to the Strand's 530 seat auditorium by house organist Ron Carter and Allen technician Alan Buchannan. In addition to the revolutionary technology used in building this instrument, the placement of twenty four (24) 90 pound speaker cabinets, powered by sixteen (16) 100 watt amplifiers placed in the large pipe organ chambers on each side of the Proscenium arch magnifies the realism of the theatre pipe organ sound. Additionally, the Strand instrument has a digital toy counter that activates "special effect sounds" like car horns, whistles, gun shots, train whistle, thunder and many others that are used in the accompaniment of silent film.Buy tickets -The Strand's Silent Film Series tickets are $10, with $9 tickets available for seniors, students, and military.
